Strides for Life Walk - Oct. 24

On Thursday, Oct 24th, Malverne High School will host its annual Strides for Life walk against breast cancer.  This community event will include efforts by students in all Malverne Public Schools.  Students from the high school, Howard T. Heber Middle School and Davison Avenue Elementary School will be joined by faculty, staff and local residents in a walk around the Malverne High School track to raise funds to find a cure.  The Maurice W. Downing Primary school students will walk at their school.   The annual event is organized by the high school’s National Honor Society and Community Service Club.

Making Strides against Breast Cancer began in Malverne in 2009 in honor of Carolyn Klingbeil, a Spanish language teacher at the high school.  Over the years, the annual event has raised over $15,000.  Please join us on the Malverne High School track from 3-5 pm.  Anyone wishing to donate online can do so through the American Cancer Society’s Malverne Strides for Life website at

As part of October as Board Appreciation Month, each of the schools presented members of the Board of Education with words of thanks in the form of a video and small token of appreciation. Maurice W. Downing students were on hand to present their video, and even sang along with their video. In addition, the Board and administration honored the district’s AP Scholars and All-Eastern Musicians.
